While the day of the paperless office was a theory that has yet to happen, the internet and its means of communications has changed the way that business is conducted to the extent that an internet presence is important for everyone.
Businesses promote themselves on the internet, even if they are major retail concerns with stores in the most fashionable shopping streets of the World; a website is just as relevant for the modern person keen to pursue a career or make contact with similar minded folk. The popularity of the social media is proof of that but it is possible to go a stage further and actually have a CV website which can be constantly updated with important details, far beyond the social chat that the media promotes.
Very few people have a unique name. It is easy to investigate whether a domain name is available for purchase. Someone wishing to have their full name as their URL may find it is taken but it is usually possible to purchase a domain name that is easily identified with themselves; that is just the first step in creating an online CV website.
A domain name and a hosting service are essential for anyone wanting an online CV website. The rest of the exercise will be personal. The content of the website will be personal choice and something that generally an individual will do. The first question to answer is what impression the website intends to give and how can that be achieved.
Many basic things are straightforward; it is the additional details that can make one person stand out from another because the CV website is intended to capture a reader’s imagination and make him or her want to learn more.
The reader may be a potential employer or someone who may have services that they can offer. There are many CVs that a beginner can look at for guidance about what to include and what to highlight.
Once the site is finished and visible to internet users, it is important that the new website can be accessed by others and the more that see it the better. This will involve some optimisation to ensure it rises up the search engine rankings to a position where browsers are likely to find it.
An online CV website is the present and the future whatever the motive of the owner, a new job or to make contact with like minded people.
